If anyone is using a head and barrel for one of these as a doorstop I would be interested in talking with you  :)

gotta love the spaniards,external gearchange centralising spring,monobloc with later GP's 501 floatbowl,can just see an oldani front hub,(rivetted spoke flange),surprise no sump on the tank either,got the ignition system sitting there instead,thermo cooling system = long warm ups,Richard M in sth oz uses a kettle element to preheat before race,maybe get in contact with him Tezza?,one of the bully mafia,John Imrie should have contacts, :P
work,the curse of the racing class!!
if a hammer dosn't fix it,you have a electrical problem!!

Mick,
      Thanks for your support and appreciation of the finer points of the Spanish machines, Spain is pretty close to Italy.....  :)

Been talking with John, going down for a visit after Easter to see him.
You will have to introduce me to Richard M.

Talking with Kevin Breedon in the UK (thanks Murph) he has directed me back to a contact in Spain. Wish I was getting frequent flyers for all the miles my emails are covering.

Guys FYI,
            Had a guy contact me through an American VMX site in response to an add I put in for a head and barrel for the TSS. Knew it was a scam but I thought I would share it with you. Asked him for photos and the engine number to make sure it was for the correct model. He tried hard.







This one has the engine number, BSA C15T 748MOE, and a photo of his TSS. Love to know where he got the picture from?

Got me a head and barrel, only taken 9 months, now the only thing missing is a top cover





Top cover looks like this
